A quick update – the Feedburner email list is back up and working again so you should be receiving your updates by email again. Sorry for the inconvenience.
On that note here is a Blog you may have missed from a couple of days ago, written for today’s Venus square Pluto aspect. Even if you’ve read it before, it may help to read it again as a reminder.
But reading and living are two different things, and all we can do is our best. Learn to let go and live a little. We have a choice now to be happy or to be right… And whatever we see as an external struggle is truly an internal one in teaching us to trust and find our own integrity, rather than hold on to expectations and resentment.
Happy Easter | Mercury stations direct, Venus conjunct Uranus in Aries, Venus square Pluto, Sun trine Pluto

Happy Easter everyone!
On April 23, 2011, Venus made a conjunction to Uranus in Aries, followed by Mercury’s direct station only hours later in the same sign. This is bringing blazing truths to the surface, asking us to push through boundaries in love, art, and financial situations and to respond authentically from the core of one’s self.
With Mercury direct, things can finally start to move forward again; although, it will be a few days before we can wrap our heads around recent insights and integrate them. A simple readjustment in perspective could change everything.
We are being awoken to a new reality, but with the Moon in conjunction to Pluto at this time, be careful not to shoot the messenger before you even hear what he or she has to say. If you let go of perceptions and expectations, listen to what someone is saying, you may actually like what you hear.
Venus in Aries is at best creative, childlike, spontaneous and passionate; at worst, she can be selfish, narcissistic, impatient and impetuous. Uranus energy is electric. The more we resist, the greater the feeling of being shocked by events, but if we dare to walk into the unknown, then we can be liberated from fears to discover new potential and passion.
As Venus moves toward a square to Pluto midweek on Wednesday, financially as well as within personal relationships, this signals an important turning point. We have a choice to respond lovingly and creatively, rather than engage in manipulative power struggles.
The aspect can and will of course have some acting like immature children. But this is a chance to reclaim our innocence and evolve into true maturity. Children don’t really hold onto resentment and anger. They may fight and disagree, but just as easily they are willing to let go, forgive, and compromise, and then they are ready to play again. Pluto is a reminder to let go of expectations, rules and conditions in order to find your integrity. Give to that which makes your heart come alive and what is of value beyond your superficial, material existence.
On Thursday, the Sun in Taurus trines Pluto, suggesting where we are humble, patient and willing to confront our fears, our efforts will be rewarded. We are burning off the dross. With love and in love, there can be a resurrection and recognition of what is real and the discovery of deeper pleasures and treasures.
I’ll check back in with the blog as time permits during the week. In the meanwhile, you can try the Subscriber service with Weekly Horoscopes and Astrology for a week’s FREE trial. Starting in May, I will be giving away one FREE Consultation a month to a Subscriber picked randomly.
On that note, on this holy day, here is a passage that most sums up the current cosmic energy and an eternal truth… Have a blessed Easter!
1 Corinthians 13
1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
